J.J. Watt, Danieal Manning have eyes on Super Bowl

Posted by Nick Scurfield on May 29, 2012 – 6:01 pm

After practice on Tuesday, Texans defensive end J.J. Watt was asked by a member of the media about his goals for the upcoming season.

“Super Bowl,” Watt said. “That’s it.”

Watt, an emerging star who had 5.5 regular-season sacks and 3.5 more in the playoffs as a rookie in 2011, is not the first Texans player to express Super Bowl aspirations this offseason. He also wasn’t the only one who talked about them on Tuesday.

“It’s way up there,” free safety Danieal Manning said of his expectations for 2012. “Definitely getting into the playoffs, and most importantly, it’s to win a Super Bowl.

“We got to start by getting to camp, getting everybody healthy from OTAs and getting them into training camp and from there, working toward a game. From that, we’ll be able to tell how really, really good we can be.”

Watt and Manning were two key parts of a defense that improved from 30th to second last season under Wade Phillips, keying the Texans’ run to the Divisional Round of the playoffs. And that was without the benefit of a full offseason because of the lockout.

“We’re a little more experienced,” Watt said. “Obviously, we have these OTAs; that’s going to help us a lot. We understand the defense a little more. We know what’s going on and we have a big goal in mind, and that’s to win that trophy.”

    That’ the kind of attitude we need among all the players. Don’t be afraid to say what you mean and go out accomplish your goals. No one wants to commit to a goal because they fear being ridculed if they fail. Me as a fan, I want to hear that attitude. Makes me feel good about the team. I am tired of hearing we want to make the playoff’s. How about, we want to win the Super Bowl. JJ and JMan and Brain Cushing (Boone Crusher) and all you guys on Bulls on Parade carry out the goal and take this city where it has never been before and you will see that Houston will be yours. Matt, Arian, Andre you guys score and BOP will do the rest. GO TEXANS!!!!!!!!!!!!
